Top 10 reasons why you need a monthly facial

St. Clair Shores Facial Services

1) Facials allow you to relax. They feel great and are healing to the soul. The power of touch, massage, proper technique, and professional products can heal. I call facials “relaxing with benefits”. Stress relief and beautiful glowing skin? YES PLEASE!

2) Facials increase circulation of the blood under the skin allowing the skin optimal health to facilitate the renewal skin cells.

3) Facials decrease waste underneath the skin that can cause puffiness, ruddiness, and fluid accumulation by manipulating the lymphatic system that lies just under the skin. Facials also aids in detoxification.

4) A good facial (and facial massage) can help smooth fine lines and promote collagen production, which is the building block of the skin (to prevent premature aging, wrinkles, and sagging).

5) A facial will cleanse the pores on a much deeper level. Similar to a good dental cleaning, this is what a facial can do for the skin/pores. Even non-acneic skin can use a good deep cleanse. Extractions/cleaning out the pores can help to maintain clear skin, stop acne formation, as well as can help to change the pore’s size. Often times left unchecked, pores can start to stretch and widen with the accumulation of oil and debris. (Please do not attempt to extract or pick at your own skin unless you are a professional and know how to do it properly- you could be at risk of scarring and infection).

6) Facials provide deep(er) exfoliation than you can achieve at home. Exfoliation smoothes skin, allows for great penetration of products (i.e. moisturizers or serums), unclogs pores, improves skin ability to retain hydration, and evens skin tone to just name a few benefits.

7) Allows a professionally trained esthetician to counsel you on the proper products you should be using at home. This alone is worth the investment as the skincare industry can be a difficult (and expensive) area to navigate.

8) Can help even skin tone and lighten dark spots. Dark spots age our skins’ appearance visibly. Again a gentle reminder- sunscreen is still a necessity no matter how great the facial. (:

9) Facials slow the aging process. They allow your skin to feel healthier, smoother, and look more radiant. Facials reduce fine lines, age spots, and relieve dehydrated skin. With these benefits, facials make us feel better about our skin. With the use of exfoliation, massage, and the penetration of nutrients and antioxidants, facials also fight to reverse aging. We will all age, but we can do it more slowly with glowing, firm, and hydrated skin.

10) Facials are not a miracle in an hour but they do give you a fresh start to a healthier and balanced complexion. Regular facials will help you maintain optimal skin health. source: uniqueskincareboutique.com

Microneedling St. Clair Shores, MI

microneedling st. clair shores mi

Body Sculpting & Spa Services specializes in microneedling in St. Clair Shores, MI. Please call us at (586) 944-0410.

What is Microneedling?

A medical device used for the purpose of breaking down old scar tissue and stimulate skin cells for proliferation. This multiplication results in the creation of new tissue layers of elastin and collagen fibers, as well as improved blood supply.

How does it work?

The device glides gently along the skin, penetrating the layers of the skin closest to the surface, of a depth of up to 2mm to create numerous tiny needle wounds. The therapy encourages the body to respond through creation new collagen and elastin fibers. As the skin responds, it plumps and thickens, reducing the appearance of scars, wrinkles and fine lines.

What conditions does micro-needling treat?*
•Mild to moderate acne scarring
•Surgical scarring
•Fine lines and wrinkles
•Stretch marks
•Pore size and skin texture
•Keloid scarring

Will it be painful?

Numbing cream can be applied prior to the treatment which drastically minimizes or eliminates any pain altogether.

Are there any risks?

The tiny pricking channels close within one hour, and because the procedure is performed under clinical conditions, the likelihood of infection occurring is extremely low.

What are the side effects?

There are virtually no negative side effects from the procedure. None have been reported in over 150,000 procedures performed worldwide. source: dermapenworld.com

Permanent Makeup in St. Clair Shores

If you are interested in permanent makeup in St. Clair Shores, MI please call Body Sculpting & Spa Services at (586) 944-0410 to schedule an appointment.

The Benefits of Permanent Makeup

The most obvious benefit of permanent makeup is that it can simply save you time. People with busy schedules, long commutes and numerous commitments can several minutes out of their morning routine each day. And you never have to worry about your makeup smudging or fading — permanent makeup won’t come off after swimming, working out or showering. But there are many reasons for someone to get permanent makeup beyond the timesaving benefits.

People with physical disabilities or impaired motor skills, such as arthritis, Parkinson’s disease or multiple sclerosis, may want permanent makeup because it’s difficult for them to apply makeup themselves [source: Society of Permanent Cosmetic Professionals]. With permanent makeup, they can continue to wear makeup without having to worry about whether they’ve applied it accurately. People with poor eyesight may invest in permanent makeup for the same reasons.

Massage Therapist St. Clair Shores – Body Sculpting & Spa Services, LLC

massage therapy st clair shoresThe Benefits of using a Massage Therapist

What exactly are the benefits of receiving massage or bodywork treatments? Useful for all of the conditions listed below and more, massage can:

•Alleviate low-back pain and improve range of motion.
•Assist with shorter, easier labor for expectant mothers and shorten maternity hospital stays.
•Ease medication dependence.
•Enhance immunity by stimulating lymph flow—the body’s natural defense system.
•Exercise and stretch weak, tight, or atrophied muscles.
•Help athletes of any level prepare for, and recover from, strenuous workouts.
•Improve the condition of the body’s largest organ—the skin.
•Increase joint flexibility.
•Lessen depression and anxiety.
•Promote tissue regeneration, reducing scar tissue and stretch marks.
•Pump oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs, improving circulation.
•Reduce postsurgery adhesions and swelling.
•Reduce spasms and cramping.
•Relax and soften injured, tired, and overused muscles.
•Release endorphins—amino acids that work as the body’s natural painkiller.
•Relieve migraine pain.

A Powerful Ally

There’s no denying the power of bodywork. Regardless of the adjectives we assign to it (pampering, rejuvenating, therapeutic) or the reasons we seek it out (a luxurious treat, stress relief, pain management), massage therapy can be a powerful ally in your healthcare regimen.

Experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of disease is stress related. And perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. While eliminating anxiety and pressure altogether in this fast-paced world may be idealistic, massage can, without a doubt, help manage stress. This translates into: •Decreased anxiety.
•Enhanced sleep quality.
•Greater energy.
•Improved concentration.
•Increased circulation.
•Reduced fatigue.
Furthermore, clients often report a sense of perspective and clarity after receiving a massage. The emotional balance bodywork provides can often be just as vital and valuable as the more tangible physical benefits.

Profound Effects

In response to massage, specific physiological and chemical changes cascade throughout the body, with profound effects. Research shows that with massage: •Arthritis sufferers note fewer aches and less stiffness and pain.
•Asthmatic children show better pulmonary function and increased peak air flow.
•Burn injury patients report reduced pain, itching, and anxiety.
•High blood pressure patients demonstrate lower diastolic blood pressure, anxiety, and stress hormones.
•Premenstrual syndrome sufferers have decreased water retention and cramping.
•Preterm infants have improved weight gain.
Research continues to show the enormous benefits of touch—which range from treating chronic diseases, neurological disorders, and injuries, to alleviating the tensions of modern lifestyles. Consequently, the medical community is actively embracing bodywork, and massage is becoming an integral part of hospice care and neonatal intensive care units. Many hospitals are also incorporating on-site massage practitioners and even spas to treat postsurgery or pain patients as part of the recovery process.

Increase the Benefits with Frequent Visits

Getting a massage can do you a world of good. And getting massage frequently can do even more. This is the beauty of bodywork. Taking part in this form of regularly scheduled self-care can play a huge part in how healthy you’ll be and how youthful you’ll remain with each passing year. Budgeting time and money for bodywork at consistent intervals is truly an investment in your health. And remember: just because massage feels like a pampering treat doesn’t mean it is any less therapeutic. Consider massage appointments a necessary piece of your health and wellness plan, and work with your practitioner to establish a treatment schedule that best meets your needs. source: massagetherapy.com

Permanent Makeup—A Bright Idea or a Risky Fad?

Permanent Makeup Clinic St. Clair ShoresWe’ve all had that morning—you wake up 30 minutes late, you need to rush out the door, and you know your makeup is going to add a precious 10 minutes to your routine. At times like this, you might ask yourself: “Wouldn’t it be great to not have to worry about my makeup every day?”

Permanent makeup can alleviate the hassle of doing your makeup every day. However, it is a serious cosmetic procedure and it’s important to weigh the risks along with the benefits.

What Exactly is Permanent Makeup?

Permanent makeup mimics the look of just-applied lipstick, lip liner, eyebrow pencil, and eyeliner. It’s done through a process called micropigmentation, where a tattoo pen is used to inject permanent ink into the skin. Each procedure takes between 30 and 120 minutes, and doctors use a local anesthetic to numb the area being tattooed. Just like any tattoo, initially the color will appear brighter or darker, then will fade. The area will be swollen for anywhere between 2-5 days and will crust over before healing.

Consider the Costs

Permanent makeup isn’t cheap—each procedure costs between $300 and $1,000! Costs can vary widely depending on the quality of the work, the training of the professional doing the work, and the number of areas and time involved.

Beautiful Benefits

The most obvious benefit to permanent makeup is waking up every day with your “face on.” You can swim, exercise, shower and wake up still looking put together and ready to go. It can be ideal for the woman who is constantly on the go. Permanent makeup may be for you if:

•You’ve lost hair due to chemotherapy, accidents, burns, or cosmetic surgery.

•You have a difficult time applying makeup due to age or conditions, such as arthritis.

•You have allergies to traditional makeup or have sensitive skin.

Chemical Peels St. Clair Shores

Chemical peels: Are They for You?

Chemical peels work well for both men and women, at any age and are the ideal treatment for anyone who wants to restore a more youthful, healthy glow to their skin.

Everything from sun exposure and aging to acne and clogged pores can leave you with uneven skin tone, fine lines, scarring and a lacklustre complexion. If you want your skin to look smoother, younger and most importantly, vibrant, a chemical peel can make a significant difference. “Mild chemical peels exfoliate and give a nice appearance to the surface of the skin,” says Dr. Eric Bernstein, director of the Main Line Center for Laser Surgery. “These increase cell turnover, improve hyperpigmentation and help improve melasma, a really tough problem to fix,” he explains.

Chemical Peels St. Clair Shores

Chemical peels: How They Work

Although the word “chemical” might sound scary, fear not. Nothing is actually “peeled off.” A chemical solution is applied to the skin and works by dissolving the upper layers of the skin. As the tissue is dissolved and skin heals itself, new tissue emerges and fresher, smoother skin is revealed.

The depth and strength of the peel used varies based on the strength of the chemicals used and the length of time the solution is applied. The formula used by your doctor will be adjusted based on your needs and skin type.

Chemical Peels: Biggest Benefits

One of the least invasive ways to improve the look of your skin, chemical peels offer a whole host of beauty benefits. Some of the biggest are listed below.

1.Diminishes fine lines, wrinkles: Creams, serums and lotions can only do so much. Chemical peels offer a fast-track to smoother, line-free skin.

2.Confidence booster: There’s no quicker path to confidence than a smooth, glowing complexion.

3.Minimal cost: Unlike spending hundreds of dollars on the newest anti-aging products, chemical peels offer concrete results at a reasonable price.

4.Fast: Sometimes referred to as the “lunch time peel” chemical peels requires minimal down time, i.e. you can get one, and get back to your life without worrying about recovery.

5.Reduced appearance of sun damage and melasma: Sun damage and melasma are two of the hardest skin concerns to treat, but chemical peels stimulate the skin to heal itself by dissolving the surface layers of skin. Through this process you trade damaged skin and dark spots for even tone and a smooth appearance.

6.Improves texture: Chemical peels gently exfoliate the skin, increasing cell turnover, which leads to improved texture.

7.Enhances collagen growth: Through the exfoliation process brought on by chemical peels, collagen production and cell renewal are stimulated, resulting in younger-looking, healthy skin.

8.Vibrant skin: One of the fastest routes to a brighter, glowing complexion is a chemical peel.

9.Acne and acne scarring: A mild chemical peel can help reduce the effects of acne on the skin and even minimize blemishes themselves.

Chemical Peels: The Breakdown

Depending on what you want to achieve – a clearer complexion, smoother skin, minimized scarring, etc. there’s a perfect peel to suit your needs.

Peels formulated with Alphahydroxy acids (AHA) and Betahydroxy acids (BHA) are the mildest form of peel (referred to as superficial peels). “Superficial peels are great for improving the appearance of sun-damaged skin or acne-prone skin, especially before big events,” Dr. Bernstein says.

Medium peels are stronger and treat skin with surface wrinkles and uneven skin tone or pigment problems. Varying strengths are used to adjust the depth of the peel, depending on what complexion concerns you have.

Deep peels require use of the strongest solution, but achieve the most dramatic results – think deeper wrinkles smoothed out and blotchiness banished. Do note though, that the stronger the peel, the higher the chances for discomfort, redness and recovery time.

Your doctor will work with you to find the perfect complexion perfecting concoction for you.

The desire for smooth, healthy, vibrant skin is universal, but achieving it doesn’t have to be daunting (or seem like a lost cause). Say yes to a chemical peel. Trust us; you won’t be sorry you did. source: chemicalpeel.org

What Are the Benefits of Facial Treatments?

Facial Treatments St. Clair Shores

You may merely enjoy the pampering and relaxation you feel when receiving a facial treatment, but there are a multitude of other benefits that offer you and your skin health and wellness, according to BeauticiansOnNet.com. Choosing the type of facial you want depends on what you’re looking for and what you can afford. Some facial treatments are designed to deep-clean the skin, while others offer moisturizing benefits, and still others help to relieve stress, which often causes acne.

Cleansing

Facials, face packs, aromatherapy facials and massage with facial creams and other remedies help deep cleanse the skin, removing toxins caused by pollution, grease and dirt found in your everyday environment. Such facials help to reduce an overabundance of sebum, which is a natural substance moisturizes and lubricates the skin. Overproduction of sebum can cause skin problems, including blackheads and acne. Cleansing facials open the pores of the skin, remove dead skin and toxins from the face, and clean the surface of the skin through exfoliation that tightens and firms the skin, according to Seasons India.

Increased Circulation

Facial treatments help to improve and restore circulation to facial skin layers, increasing the flow of oxygen-enriched blood to skin cells, according to the Day Spas website. This rush of blood to the skin gives your skin a healthy glow and plumps skin cells with vital nutrients and water, which reduce the appearance of wrinkled and dry skin. Nutrients like blood, vitamins and minerals found in the blood, along with adequate hydration, help develop and maintain new skin cells, essential for a youthful, healthy appearance.

Emotional Benefits

Facial treatments feel good, offering soothing relaxation, according to Day Spas. Facial massage treatments increase circulation and the flow of blood, and they include a variety of creams, aromatherapy and oils that moisturize the skin, smell good, and relieve stress as well as encourage peace of mind and contentment.

Anti-Aging

While there is no way to stop the aging process, a variety of facial treatments and technologies may help slow the skin-aging process and offer you more youthful, supple skin. Intense pulsed light, or IPL, laser treatments help to remove dead skin and increase collagen and cell growth and development, according to the Skin Care Resource Center. source: livestrong.com

Micro-needling Macomb County, MI

If you are searching for Macomb County micro-needling services, call Body Sculpting & Spa at (586) 944-0140 to schedule an appointment.

What is Micro-needling?

Micro-needling Macomb County

Micro-needling is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedure that helps minimize the signs of aging. Micro-needling causes controlled micro-injuries that stimulate the body’s natural wound healing process. The micro-injuries trigger the release of cytokines and growth factors that lead to remodeling of collagen and elastin.

There are three phases to the wound repair process:

Phase I: Inflammation. Piercing the skin triggers your immune system to disinfect the wounds, remove debris, increase blood flow and begin to create new tissue.

Phase II: Proliferation. The wound is re-built with new granulation cells, as well as a temporary (type III) collagen and elastin, which are part of the extracellular matrix. Additionally, a new network of blood vessels develops.

Phase III: Remodeling. The wound has been replaced with new dermal tissues and blood vessels. The type III collagen in the newly formed tissue is replaced with stronger type I collagen, which can contract to create a tightening or “shrink wrap” effect on the skin.

How is micro-needling performed?

Micro-needling can be performed using a medical-grade, state-of-the-art micro-needling tool available only through medical professionals. The treatment typically takes about 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the size and number of areas treated and the degree of treatment requested by the patient.

What are the benefits of micro-needling?

Helps reduce the signs of aging, improve the appearance of acne scars and rejuvenate aging skin. In one study of 60 patients with acne scarring, three micro-needling treatments resulted in a 31 percent improvement in skin texture, with no discoloration of the skin. Micro-needling was effective for all skin types.

Has minimal risk of infections or scarring.
Micro-needling doesn’t remove or damage the epidermis and doesn’t trigger the inflammatory pathway, meaning infections and scarring are unlikely. blog.skinpen.com
